There's something about the colour orange that makes it pretty intimidating to wear. It's brash, bold and at times far too in your face. However, when it's done well (like the outfits I've selected above) it's a dazzling colour for a hot summer, reflecting everything that is so appealing about the season - the warmth, relaxation and a more 'happy go lucky' approach to life.
If the prospect of wearing it still seems daunting (as it does for me) start with one piece, incorporate it into your wardrobe and begin building outfits around it. As you become more confident wearing it, I have a feeling that you will begin to love it.
